Forum: prelinger Subject: 400 GB of Perlinger Movies to download in 7 days

I will download as many movies as I can to 2 maxtor Diamond Plus 9 drives (200 GB each) and I will also try to do this in one week or sooner. I don't know if this is too optimistic even with my cable modem.

400 GB/ 7 days = 57 GB per day = 2 GB + per hour

Nope. Looks like I'll need 4 cable modems chugging together to pull in that kind of bytes/sec.

My 7 days has been adjusted by math to 1 month. What do you think?

Yesterday, I was getting downoads at 26 k per sec. TODAY, I can only get a SLOW 9. Do I need to thank you????

Hmmmm....I can do many amazing things, but downloading to a hard drive that I haven't bought yet is not one of them.

Wait until after I've come back from the computer store this weekend, clamping a brand new maxtor under each arm, before you start eyeing me suspiciously :)

When you're at normal speeds, how fast are your downloads from Prelinger anyways?

If you aren't aware of download speeds, you might be new to this site. I WATCH these films, and the bandwidth is paid for by licencing to professional film people. If you want to choke your modem, go to KAZAA and get twenty downloads going. If you are into network speeds, contact your ISP and tweak your handshake protocols in DOS. But please, show respect to this precious repository.
Thanks.

hopefully you would be nice to others and only get one file at a time

You should be able to get approx 6-8 gigs a day with one cable modem I think.

The downloads are very slow during high demand times and faster at off peak times (possibly max modem bandwidth).

good luck on your goal.
